pgl/INSTALL Mon, 27 Jan 2014 00:59:55 +0100 Table of Contents: ================== 1.) Manual installation 2.) Uninstall 3.) Build dependencies and runtime environment 4.) Available packages, build scripts and other distribution specific tips 1.) Manual installation ======================= This is the general method to install pgl. Please also have a look at the distribution specific section (chapter 4). Step 1: Get the source: ----------------------- Either get the latest stable release from peerguardian.sourceforge.net and unpack it. Or get the current development code (the following is one command line!): git clone git://peerguardian.git.sourceforge.net/gitroot/peerguardian/peerg uardian Step 2: Install pgl's dependencies ---------------------------------- Install the build dependencies (including the development headers) and runtime environment for the components (see chapter 3). Step 3: Compilation and installation ------------------------------------ Step 3.0: Create/update autotools files (only required for git version) ----------------------------------------------------------------------- If you are using the development version from the git repository generate the autotools files first. Go to the peerguardian/pgl directory and run: ./autogen.sh To update the files run: autoreconf Step 3.1: Configure ------------------- Pgl uses autotools which comes with several configure-switches you have to check before compiling. Go to the pgl/ directory and run: ./configure --help Check the options and the paths. There are some common paths and options you should consider to set like: --prefix [default: /usr/local] --sysconfdir [default: $prefix/etc, recommended: /etc] --localstatedir [default: $prefix/var, recommended: /var] --with-iconsdir [default: $datadir/pixmaps] --with-initddir [default: $sysconfdir/init.d] --with-logdir [default: $localstatedir/log/pgl] --with-piddir [default: $localstatedir/run] --with-tmpdir [default: /tmp] --with-lsb= [default: none/built-in, recommended: /lib/lsb/init-functions] IMPORTANT: Especially the "--sysconfdir=/etc" setting is required for a working installation! Otherwise you should expect e.g. dbus errors. For a slick installation you can build without the GUI and turn off dbus support: --without-qt4 --disable-dbus Especially for embedded devices (like router or NAS box) you might disable storing of textual IP range descriptions: --enable-lowmem But generally it is recommended (and required for the GUI) to use the default, which is not to use lowmem. Now you should be clear about the settings you need for your distribution and run something similar to: ./configure \ --prefix=/my/prefix \ --with-initddir=/my/initddir \ --sysconfdir=/etc Full example configure line for a complete build and full system integration (on a Debian system, but not adapted to multiarch /usr/lib/ARCH/pgl/ paths): ./configure \ --prefix=/usr \ --mandir=/usr/share/man \ --datadir=/usr/share \ --sysconfdir=/etc \ --localstatedir=/var \ --with-lsb=/lib/lsb/init-functions \ --enable-cron \ --enable-dbus \ --enable-logrotate \ --enable-networkmanager \ --enable-zlib \ --with-qt4 \ --disable-lowmem Minimal example line for a complete build and full system integration (on a Debian system, installs most things to /usr/local/): ./configure \ --sysconfdir=/etc \ --localstatedir=/var \ --with-lsb=/lib/lsb/init-functions If you use systemd on your system, use: --with-systemd You can also specify the unit dir path like (usually not necessary): --with-systemd=/usr/lib/systemd/system/ Gentoo has its own init file, use it with: --with-gentoo-init Step 3.2: Build and install --------------------------- After configure you can build and install the package, just issue: make make install Step 3.3: Activate pgl on system initialization ----------------------------------------------- a) SysV init script ------------------- On some systems (e.g. Debian and Ubuntu based) it may be required to activate the init script: update-rc.d pgl defaults Or alternatively: /usr/lib/lsb/install_initd /etc/init.d/pgl RedHat's system initialization: chkconfig add pgl chkconfig pgl on Or probably manually, something like: ln -s /etc/init.d/pgl /etc/rc0.d/K01pgl ln -s /etc/init.d/pgl /etc/rc1.d/K01pgl ln -s /etc/init.d/pgl /etc/rc2.d/S20pgl ln -s /etc/init.d/pgl /etc/rc3.d/S20pgl ln -s /etc/init.d/pgl /etc/rc4.d/S20pgl ln -s /etc/init.d/pgl /etc/rc5.d/S20pgl ln -s /etc/init.d/pgl /etc/rc6.d/K01pgl Or something else, please tell us how it works for your distribution! Other systems, like Gentoo, don't need this activation of the init script. b) systemd service file ----------------------- To start the program for the session: systemctl start pgl.service To have it up and running on every boot systemctl enable pgl.service 2.) Uninstall =============================== To uninstall issue the following command: make uninstall 3.) Build dependencies and runtime environment ============================================== Build dependencies: - autotools (autoconf, automake, libtoolize) - nfnetlink development files - libnetfilter-queue development files - libdbus development files (optional, required for the GUI) - Qt4 development files including Qt4 dbus (optional, required for the GUI) - zlib development files (optional, for loading gz compressed blocklists directly) Runtime environment pgld: - the above libraries - iptables (required) - netfilter kernel support (Linux kernel >= 2.6.13 for NFQUEUE support) Either as modules or directly built in the kernel. These are the modules that are loaded here. Note that "xt_" may be named "ip_" or "ipt_" on older systems. This list was compiled with: lsmod|grep -E "^x|^nf|^ip"|grep -Ev "^ip6|^ipv6|^nfs|^xhci"|sed "s| .*||"|sort iptable_filter ip_tables ipt_REJECT nf_conntrack nf_conntrack_ipv4 nf_defrag_ipv4 nfnetlink nfnetlink_queue x_tables xt_conntrack xt_iprange xt_mark xt_NFQUEUE xt_tcpudp - dbus daemon (optional) Runtime environment pglcmd: - pgld - wget (optional, needed for blocklists update) - p7zip (optional, needed for blocklists packed as .7z) - unzip (optional, needed for blocklists packed as .zip) - start-stop-daemon (optional) - awk, sed, grep, basename, dirname, cat, cd, mv, cp, zcat, md5sum, renice, pidof (those should really be on every system) - /usr/bin/printf (optional, needed during "update" for archive type detection) - /lib/lsb/init-functions (optional,there's a copy built in) - NetworkManager (optional, needed for automatic whitelisting of newly brought up network interfaces. Not needed in Debian.) - sendmail (optional, needed to send informational (blocklist updates) and warning mails (if pglcmd.wd detects a problem.) Runtime environment pglgui: - pgld - pglcmd - Qt4 - dbus - whois 4.) Available packages, build scripts and other distribution specific tips ========================================================================== pgl was written and tested under Debian Gnu/Linux Jessie. However it should run under every Linux system. It is our goal to make life as easy as possible for users and packagers. NOTE FOR PACKAGERS: If you are a packager just contact us at http://sourceforge.net/projects/peerguardian/ or jre-phoenix@users.sourceforge.net. We'll gladly give you all possible support, change the code if feasible and publish your work. Of course you are welcome to join the project and e.g. commit directly to the git repository. To test if pgl is correctly integrated in your system, you'll have to verify the correct handling of the init, cron, NetworkManager and logrotate files (all are part of pglcmd, logrotate also of pgld), and may test if LSB="/lib/lsb/init-functions" works. deb packages: ------------- jre provides official packages in a repository for automatic updates: Debian at http://moblock-deb.sourceforge.net Ubuntu at https://launchpad.net/~jre-phoenix/+archive/ppa Debian RFP: http://bugs.debian.org/578192 Ubuntu RFP: https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+bug/109822 rpm packages: ------------- peerguardian is in Mageia Cauldron, see https://bugs.mageia.org/show_bug.cgi?id=8502 [outdated] by pixecs (last update 06-03-2011, pgl 2.0.4): http://forums.phoenixlabs.org/thread-15882-post-120482.html#pid120482 [outdated] CentOS by agent86 (last update 06-20-2011, pgl 2.0.4): http://forums.phoenixlabs.org/thread-16383-post-120468.html spec and patch file rpms (including netfilter libraries) RedHat's system initialization: chkconfig add pgl chkconfig pgl on openSUSE: --------- Giorgos successfully compiled pgl 2.3.4, keeping all options, except Gentoo script and lowmem. ./configure --sysconfdir=/etc --with-systemd make su make install [outdated] by pixecs (last update 06-03-2011, pgl 2.0.4): http://forums.phoenixlabs.org/thread-15882-post-120482.html#pid120482 ARCH / AUR (Arch User Repo): ---------------------------- PKGBUILD by Pierre Buard (Gilrain), Arch Linux maintainer https://aur.archlinux.org/packages.php?ID=51839 Gentoo: ------- available in main portage tree by our Gentoo maintainer hasufell: http://packages.gentoo.org/package/net-firewall/pglinux Slackware [outdated]: --------------------- by godmachine81: branch "pgl_slackware" in the git repository, slack tar available. synology [outdated]: --------- 2009 by dino: http://forums.phoenixlabs.org/thread-1622-post-119717.html#pid119717
